Has Joe Rogan flipped?
Wildly popular podcaster Joe Rogan shocked much of his own audience when claimed that “the morons had a king” when Donald Trump was the president of the United States.
According to Insider, Rogan’s comments came during a podcast he had with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy when the two men were talking about politics.
The comments came during a discussion about the newly sworn-in Republican Rep. George Santos after it was learned that he had lied about much of his past career to get elected.
During the conversation, Rogan said, “I mean, who the f*ck is gonna sign off on getting rid of all the special interest groups, getting rid of all the lobbyists? No one. So it’s like, that’s why it was fascinating to see a guy like Trump getting to power because he was such an outsider.”
After Portnoy agreed with Rogan, Rogan doubled down and attacked Trump supporters saying, “And the morons had a king. There’s a lot of morons. And it doesn’t matter what he’s saying, like, for them, he represents them.”
“‘He’s not perfect, but at least he’s real’ – like there’s that sort of thought process that he played with,” Rogan said as he tried to mimic Trump supporters.
Rogan later added, “And also people that didn’t, they didn’t feel represented by someone who was ever in charge. And now this guy is, and it’s their guy.”
Joe Rogan has said multiple times now that he doesn’t support Donald Trump. He has also pointed out that he prefers Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis much better than Trump and that he would make a “good president” if elected.
